Nukes in Space!
You wanna mess with us North Korea? We just place a space silo 25000 miles above them in geo-synch obrit, I don't think you'd want those nukes with several dozen over your head and ready to go, annialting you in 2 min. before you can get to your bunkers.
If both the US and china get them up there we will have another cold war, at lest we will get more out of it since it will be space. If we don't get annilhated we could end up taking the tech and using is for peaceful purpouses.

Tumerok89Brings up a good question actualy, what is the moons components? would there be anything to mine or natural resources to extract?
It's all cheese. OK, so it's got some other stuff too. Aluminium, titanium, iron, uranium, hydrogen, magnesium, potassium and silicon being amongst some of the most important mineral deposits of the moon's crust. They've only checked for the abundance of these in local areas but it is thought that the moon is pretty much the same as Earth in terms of composition.
The only thing with this, is you know (mainly the US) are going to suddenly be intrested in space travel again, they simply can't let any other country / power have an upper hand over them!
